driver to device mapping problem in Linux

Hi all,
The Bus driver in Linux kernel maps the devices with drivers, say like "Such and such a device uses such and such a driver". Is there a possibility of finding out which device uses which driver under linux. I mean is there a command which says "Such and such a device is using such and such a driver" under linux. I have used lsmod but then that just gives information about the modules under use !

You're probably going to have to do a little leg work but how about
cat /proc/modules

Also I believe that KDE (at least in Kubuntu) may have something similar to device manager that may give you the info.
